Fatal shooting near Occupy Oakland under investigation
The victim -- an African American man is his 20s -- has not been identified, said Officer Johnna Watson of the Oakland Police Department.
No arrests have been made and police have no suspect information, she said.
“We’re in the middle of trying to figure out” whether the shooting had anything to do with the encampment, Watson said.
It happened as television news crews were setting up their cameras for live reports for their 5 p.m. broadcasts. However, no cameras appear to have recorded what happened, or filmed the suspect, Watson said.
